Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its birth over one and a half centuries ago, photography has undergone a number of twists and turns in its progress from a practical means of documentation to an art form with it sown icons, heroes, galleries and collectors. "the Photography Book" brings together 500 inspiring, moving and beautiful images of famous events and people, sensational landscapes, historical moments, ground breaking photojournalism, insightful portraits, sports, wildlife, fashion and the everyday. 500 photos, 70 in color.

Book News Annotation:

A wonderful compendium, and a wonderful value. Great for browsing and for reference. Spanning nearly 150 years of photography, this hefty (10x12") volume presents 70 color and 430 b&w photographs--each significant either historically or artistically, some world famous and instantly familiar, others lesser known. They are shown full-page, arranged alphabetically by photographer's name. Captions describe each image and its importance and provide cross-referencing and biographical information about each photographer. An international directory of galleries where photography is permanently exhibited and glossaries of technical terms and movements add to the book's completeness. Distributed in the US by Chronicle Books.
